Samgyupsal at Home

We were excited to try the Samgyupsal set my DD purchased last month so she ordered a few ingredients from Romantic Baboy. The set includes woosamgyupsal, samgyupsal raw meat, extra sides odeng and kimchi. I’ve only added onion rings for side dish.

This set is good for four persons. We were able to consume the food for lunch and dinner. The remaining ingredients were used to prepare breakfast the following day. Sulit talaga!
Grilling woosamgyupsal is a breeze because the meat is so tender.
Caramelizing onion rings.
Grilled woosamgyupsal and samgyupsak meat. The best when paired with kimchi. Odeng is also tasty.

6 Tips for Keeping a Clean Kitchen

Nobody likes cleaning. Let’s just get that out of the way. However, depending on the room, this dislike can vary, with the kitchen being the most disliked room in the house to clean. And with good reason: it gets very messy very quickly! But it doesn’t always have to be or stay that way.

Clean as you use

When you are cooking, and you finish with a ladle, give it a quick clean and store it away as you cook. The same goes for pots and cutlery. It all works to reduce the mess of your kitchen after cooking. You can use flat poly bags to store your clean utensils before placing them in the cabinet.

Clean up spills immediately

Keep a broom and a dustbin in the kitchen and be sure to clean up any spills straight away. If you don’t have the time to sweep every day, consider a robot vacuum to lend you a hand.

Set up bowls

If you are anticipating having to keep ingredients off the heat and separate before combining them, keep a set of bowls on your countertop and use these as you prepare. Once you’re finished with them, of course, wash them out and store them away.

Speaking of bowls, the same tip goes for any cutlery or utensils that you will reuse

Set up a large bowl or even a cooking pot and fill it with warm water. In between stirring and mixing, keep your utensils in here. This is good for preventing splatters as utensils drop and move.

Keep your trash empty

Apart from smelling, a constantly full kitchen trash can is the quickest way to accumulate mess. Swap yours for a small counter top container (an old plastic container can do), and use this instead. The small size and visibility will make you more likely to keep it empty. I use poly bags on role as thrash lining for easy replacement.

Make more space

If you have appliances and utensils cluttering your countertops, then you are off to a bad start. Clear out your pantry and kitchen storage spaces of items you realistically will never eat or use, and utilize the space for storing your small appliances. Keep the items you always use in custom poly bags for easy identification.

Keeping a clean kitchen isn’t as impossible as you might think, it just takes a little time, effort, and know-how.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for plastic packaging for your kitchen needs, check out International Plastics brand because they carry ISO 9001 certified products, which means they meet all USDA and FDA requirements for food contact. They manufacture, import, and wholesale supplier of protective, flexible packaging.

Simple Birthday Celebration for the Man of the House

Hubby just celebrated his birthday a few days ago. We had spaghetti, pizza, calamari, and mojos for lunch and dinner courtesy of our daughter. Thanks, N.

Everyone is busy so we were not able to take pictures of the food except this Ube Bloom Cake from Red Ribbon Bakeshop. We prefer this cake variant from the other ones that we tried before because the icing is not too thick and the sweetness is just right for us.

Happy birthday, oppa! Saranghae!

Happy birthday, we love you so much. We pray for your good health and long life. May all your wishes come true. 🙂
